Adding a fire feature to your outdoor space makes it a destination. Like moths to a flame, you and your guests will be drawn to a fire pit in the evening to relax, enjoy food and drinks, get warm, and enjoy one another's company. While portable fire pits are a good choice for some situations, stone fire features are more permanent and likely to complement a home, landscape, and the surrounding terrain. For ambitious do-it-yourselfers who can follow instructions, building a fire pit shouldn't take lots of time or cost. It can even be a good beginner's project for an outdoor building enthusiast.

15 Stone Fire Pits to Spark Ideas
Determine the size, shape and location of the fire pit. Take measurements height, width and depth to a stone yard and select the material for the project. Palletized stone is a pallet of pre-sorted premium stone. It is more expensive but will save time because the stones are a more uniform size, shape and quality. Have the stone yard deliver the material to the project site. Dig out the area inside the marked circle for the footing of the fire pit. Dig down four to six inches using a shovel and cut a second piece of string the radius of the fire pit minus the width of fire pit wall.

Whether you love roasting marshmallows or want a bit of warmth during the cool summer nights, nothing quite beats sitting around a fire pit. Outdoor fire pits may come in many looks and styles, but there are two main types two choose from — wood ones and gas ones. When you choose a fire pit design that uses wood, you get more of a campfire feel, complete with crackling sounds and sparks flying up in the air. Gas pits allow you to create the beautiful look you want with the ability to shut it off with a flick of a switch.
